Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for your question and welcome to EmpowHer!
Hot flashes are sudden feelings of warmth, which are usually most intense over the face, neck and chest. Your skin may redden, just as if you were blushing. Hot flashes can also cause profuse sweating and may leave you chilled.

A fever is completely unrelated to hot flashes and could be a sign of:
A virus
A bacterial infection
Heat exhaustion
Extreme sunburn
Certain inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis — inflammation of the lining of your joints (synovium)
Certain Medications
Immunizations

Hope this helps,

Rosa
